My love readings are random or rather “divinely guided” because I go with the flow and the Divine lets me know when it is needed. The urge came on strong today and the message rang through so clear to me. I keep hearing this little mantra-Live and Learn, Love and Learn...Learn in Love!
This reading is for couples who are either dating, married or in a long-term committed relationship. This is a “general reading” that might not apply to you and your specific situation. Again, it seems pretty specific, but I hope you are able to take away something that resonates with your heart and soul. Also, I used a different layout for the reading so I was able to get a little peek into both partners’ views. I know I have been on both sides of this situation in relationships and I know you probably have too. Now I can share an outside perspective from a place of love, compassion and non-judgement.
It appears that both partners have taken some time away from “the relationship” to do some soul-searching and inner work. This doesn’t mean that you have separated but maybe just took some emotional/mental distance to sort some stuff out. It seems that YOU have initiated the soul-searching and your partner naturally went with the flow. They also see that you have gained some independence in the process. It appears that at one point there might have been a co-dependency (maybe the intoxication of new love or some other dependency like finances, etc) from both sides in the relationship-but it is evolving and growing-allowing for individual independence and leading to interdependence. This is a great thing.
With the soul-searching you have been doing, you have really been receiving some divine guidance through your intuition. Keep listening to your heart! Let your mind listen to your heart-it is wise and loving-it knows what is best for you and your relationship. In fact, I hate to say it but you are a wise one-I hate to say this because it does not imply that your partner isn’t. Really you have been listening to your soul and have gained some much needed knowledge and insight into what you need. This is beautiful. I also see that you are the one in control at the present time-now don’t get all power hungry and greedy with that. You are the manifester-the magician-with all the resources and knowledge you need to direct where this relationship goes. That is why it is so crucial to keep having heart-mind communication and assessing your thoughts. Your thoughts WILL create your reality, so make sure you are choosing your thoughts and not letting them run rampant off your subconscious fears, doubts and defenses. Stay mindful of your ever-running thoughts and mindset and direct them appropriately. Focus on what you want, not on what you don’t want.
I also see that you have become a little stubborn and a little ungrateful...I say “little” because I don’t want to offend you-know that I am not judging-I have been there and have empathy. There is an opportunity for teamwork here and an improvement in your relationship-so see this as an opportunity, even a blessing. Discomfort happens and chaos happens as a precursor to much needed change! You might be brewing up a battle (big or small) but I caution you to hold your battle horses! I'm seeing frustration and boredom but can you take a step back to see how you put yourself there? Remove your partner from the equation for a second. What have you done to get here? What's your responsibility? Did you set up secret expectations? You might be so upset with your partner for not giving you what you need or want...but seriously do they know, do you know and if so have you communicated that to them?
You have spent some time figuring out what is important to you and what you want-so communicate that with them. If you still don’t know, take that time to introspect and figure it out. Then keep doing it as we are always growing and our wants/needs are ever-changing. You need to know what you want and ask for it. Don’t fail the student who doesn’t have the textbook or know what the test is even on. Placing expectations on somebody without letting them know the expectations or giving them a guidebook is setting them, you and your relationship up for failure. Apologize to them for the lack of communication and let them know you are committing to communication for the sake of your relationship moving forward! It's an illusion that the grass is always greener on the other side. Your grass is green but you need to nurture it-a little TLC!
Your partner is so open and receptive to finding harmony and balance within the relationship right now...do you see that? They see you taking your time to introspect and they have taken their time to introspect as a result. It seems they are willing to do what is necessary to have harmony, stability and happiness for the both of you in this relationship. That makes me so happy to see! They are open to learning about your newfound revelations, your wants and needs. They are willing to listen and take responsibility for their end of the relationship. They just want to “simply love” and are willing to take a leap of faith with you-a fresh start-but again the ball appears to be in your court. Do you see that you have the ability to make your dreams come true in this relationship? You will need to give it a chance and communicate your feelings, your revelations, your needs and wants. If you need more time to figure these out-that is perfectly acceptable-but please communicate that to them. I see their loyalty for you and your relationship-please communicate. Also, they have had some revelations about their wants and needs-listen to them with an open heart and an open mind. Use your compassion and empathy-I know you have it!
Givers-such loving people-but such difficult people. I myself am a recovering giver. You just know what others want/need more than you know what you want/need. You naturally can read people and give them what they want/need without that person having to ask. Lovely-that makes it easy for your partner...but maybe a little annoying too. Here comes the issue-problems arise when you expect your partner to do that for you. You might be a mind/need reader, but most people are not...consider this your superpower! The downside to being a giver, is being a poor receiver and not communicating your needs...most likely not even knowing your needs. You spend so much energy reading what the other person wants that you don’t check in with what you want. Givers need to learn to communicate their needs and “receive.” Balance is so important otherwise you can oscillate between selfless to selfish. You can get so frustrated and feel so unappreciated for all you give and then get this “screw you, I’m out” attitude...am I right? You might have suppressed your feelings, wants and needs for so long that you are ready to just walk away rather than express how you feel (do the inner work to find out what you feel, want, need) and have hope for positive change. There is love here-don’t give up-it’s time for that inner work if it hasn’t already happened or the problems will repeat themselves in the future. Your partner is open to learning your needs and compromising. Balance out your giving with giving to yourself and receiving what you want/need from your partner. Figure out what you need so you can communicate those needs to your partner. Find a balance of giving/receiving always so you can finally jump off that frustrating seesaw.
Humility will go a long way-not blame! Our relationships are mirrors where self reflection and growth can take place. If we believe and subconsciously treat our partner like they are clueless or careless to our needs-then guess what-that's what we will see reflected back to us. A self fulfilling prophecy. It's time to believe that your partner wants compromise and balance and to simply love. It’s time to communicate from the heart and to take responsibility for your feelings. What do you want for this relationship? I bet you and your partner have some shared relationship goals-so talk to them from the heart and then come up with a plan. Share your goals then “teamwork” a solution-here is how I can contribute...then let them share how they can contribute to the shared goal.
The opportunity is here for you to try a loving perspective to the situation. It is easy to get wrapped up in the words that are being said. What does your heart say about this situation? It knows the truth. Trust that. Sit still, take a deep breath and ask your heart what you need to know.
Seriously, Jason Mraz’s “I Won’t Give Up” just started playing on Pandora. The Universe/Divine/God is beautiful. Listen to what it tells you-through songs, intuition, your dreams, etc.
Sending you love, hope and faith! You got this-don’t forget-you are the magician!
Decks Consulted: Psychic Tarot for the Heart by John Holland, Smith-Waite Tarot Deck Centennial Edition, Romance Angels Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue and Whispers of Love by Angela Hartfield
This week’s angel message seems to be aligned with the new moon on November 29. The night before a new moon is an ideal time to set your intentions for this new moon cycle. So ask yourself, “what do I want?” This week’s message relates to new beginnings, choices, creativity, peace, love, passion and relationships. As usual, this is a “general reading” and might not apply to you and your specific situation. With that being said, I hope you are able to take away something that resonates with your heart and soul.
The “Choose Wisely” card seems to be a continuation from last week's reading. You have a dream; you have a goal you want to achieve and now there seems to be many options swirling around your mind before taking that first step. Some of the options might be illusions, some too grand of expectations. Take time making your decision, take time to imagine all your options and examine the feelings that arise with them. The wise option will be when you feel peace inside-a knowing, a certainty. The other cards indicate that choices involving harmony, peace, compassion and love (self love included) will all be wise choices. Don’t forget that loving options include those where you love and honor yourself as well as others. Any options you choose from a place of fear are sure to not work out for your highest good. Also, when you follow your intuition about your soul path and pursue your passions-the Universe has a magical way of supporting you. So again, a leap of faith into the unknown may be necessary.
It seems like the recurring theme is “fear,” therefore, please forgive me sounding like a broken record! But if we don’t face our fears, can we grow? What are you afraid of? Success? Failure? Being alone? Emotional intimacy? Rejection? Other’s opinions and judgments? The unknown? Don’t let fear take away your power. Are your choices based in fear? Before making a decision-question your decision. Think of your motives for making this decision. Check in with your intuition to make sure it is leading. Our souls do not know fear. Your soul which speaks through your intuition knows your path and your purpose. If you make a decision using your intuition you will feel an inner peace with your decision. Some argue that fear is the opposite of love. Fear is at the root of hate, greed, stress, bitterness, “walls” and unforgiving. Any choices made out of fear will bring your fears to the surface again and again. That seems unsettling. You might as well face those fears at the start, so you can put them to rest and make a decision that honors your soul. If you make decisions from a place of love-including self love, you are sure to be proud of your decision and certain that it was the right choice to make.
Is there is a situation that is out of your control, hasn’t resolved yet and is causing you stress and worry? Archangel Michael assures you that there is no need to worry. The angels have been working behind the scenes to ensure that the situation is resolved. The Universe has a way of working things out that our logical mind can’t process.
You might have some choices dealing with love and relationships. The first card in this reading is “Harmony” also known as “The Lovers” in other tarot decks. This card can mean choices and/or commitment. It can also mean a harmony within yourself-between your masculine and feminine, your yin and yang energies. With relationships, this doesn’t always mean a romantic relationship-I see this card going in two directions. Combined with the “Sacral Chakra” card-I do see this as romantic. But combined with the “Community” card, I see it as friendship or business. Either way there is a connection with like-minded people and kindred spirits where mutual support and growth are possible. If not already there, rest assured the Universe is sending beneficial alliances your way.
Singles: You have somebody in your life (or soon to be in your life) where the two of you just get each other. It is a union of mind, body and spirit. This relationship has a natural harmony. You could be meeting the love of your life! Again, now is a time to check your fears and also to be true to yourself and your potential partner. Let them know what you are looking for in a partner and what you have to offer.
Couples: Sometimes who is right and who is wrong doesn’t matter for the sake of the relationship. Pick your battles and choose to compromise where you can. Sometimes the best thing is to seek harmony and choose peace. To have empathy and compassion for the other person. To love unconditionally and accept people where they are at, including their “flaws.” Can you start fresh? Can you let go of the past and move forward without baggage? The Universe is supporting a new beginning of harmony, balance and love. With the “sacral chakra” card, I can’t help but say that maybe a little “sexual healing” is needed. Sorry, I couldn’t resist!
The “sacral chakra” is your second chakra located about two inches below your navel and home to your sexual organs. Its color is orange and you could benefit from incorporating orange foods such as oranges and carrots into your diet right now. Yoga and dancing can also benefit your sacral chakra. The sacral chakra is your passion and pleasure center. The gift of this chakra is experiencing life through feelings and sensations. It is the center of feeling, emotion, empathy, pleasure, sensuality, intimacy and creativity. This energy center allows you to live in the moment. The main challenge of this chakra is the conditioning of our society. We live in a society where feelings are not valued; where passions and emotional reactions are frowned upon. When we deny feelings and passions (which is our nature) we can disconnect from ourselves and create blockages in this chakra. Our society shames and rejects sexuality on one hand and magnifies it on the other hand. Just look at advertisements and how people are portrayed in film and music. With this society conditioning, we can certainly have a screwed up sacral chakra. The sacral chakra is also your center of creativity-just think of how conception of a child is a “creative” process. Everything you create-a baby, a poem, a drawing, etc. originates from the energy of the sacral chakra. If this chakra is open-you are passionate and present in your body, sensual, creative and connected with your feelings.
The last card ties in with intuition, creativity and the sacral chakra. The angels are urging you to play music-playing music could include playing an instrument, singing or simply listening and dancing to music. You will feel connected with your creative self. You might receive messages from lyrics or your intuition while listening to music. Overall, music is therapy for the soul.
Wishing you a fearless, creative, passionate and connected week!
-I open my heart and life to the creative inspiration of Divine Love. I choose to create happiness in every new day.
-I open my life to the wonderful people around me. I am making strong and beneficial connections in both my personal and professional life.
Sacral Chakra Affirmation:
-I love and enjoy my body. I have healthy boundaries. I am open to experiencing the present moment through my senses. I am passionate. I feel pleasure and abundance with every breath I take. I nourish my body with healthy food and clean water. I know how to take care of my needs. I value and respect my body. I am open to touch and closeness. I allow myself to experience pleasure. My sexuality is sacred. Emotions are the language of my soul. I take good care of my physical body. I am at peace.
-Visualize the light of Divine Love pouring into your heart and mind like the rays of the sun bringing inspiration, growth and abundant blessings. See the future you want to create and know the sun is shining on you and your intentions now.
-Archangel Michael I give any worries, cares and concerns to you in exchange for true peace in all ways. Thank you for resolving this [describe situation] in a Divinely perfect way.

This week’s angel message is so positive-bringing a message to get out of your own way, let go of your fears and go for that dream! I can feel the shift, a time of transition and movement into “better” after trying times. Positive forward movement, fulfillment of wishes and peace can all be yours if you choose to follow your heart. As usual, this is a “general reading” which might not apply to you and your particular situation. With that being said, I hope you are able to take away something that resonates with your heart and soul.
You’ve got a dream; you’ve got a plan...maybe not the whole plan but the next step has been illuminated. Now it’s time to take that step-the action you need to pursue the life you want. It’s time to admit the truth to yourself and act accordingly. This might be a fear of making some necessary life changes. Consciously acknowledge your feelings and how they impact the way you are living. This is the right time to heal and release any feelings that have been holding you hostage. Forgive others and yourself so that your wishes, desires and goals have a clear and unobstructed path. Be grateful for all your past experiences as they have brought you to this point in your life. You have gained maturity, strength and wisdom in your journey.
The only thing standing between you and your dream is fear. What are you afraid of? Failing? Success? Rejection? Other’s Opinions? The Unknown? You will never know unless you try. Do you want to risk the haunting “what if’s” if you don’t go for it? Life is for living and if you fall, you will learn and grow stronger from it. Don’t give up on yourself. Say "no" to self-sabotage. You will be proud of yourself for having the courage and strength to pursue your dreams! And with the Law of Attraction-if you wholeheartedly believe you will succeed-you will! There is also a message to “shield yourself” from the energy of others. I know many (in the US) will be celebrating Thanksgiving this week and you are going to be around many people...it is important to shield yourself on a regular basis (especially when you are interacting with a group of people) so that their fears and other negative emotions do not affect you.
You have all the skills, knowledge, gifts and talents needed to move you along in a positive direction. Your efforts have gotten you to a point of prosperity and abundance-waiting for you if you are open to receiving and accepting that which you have strived so hard to achieve. Happiness, success, good health, completion and accomplishment of your dreams and goals are in the palm of your hands. Your wishes are coming true and this is a time of emotional satisfaction, contentment and enjoyment.
The “Move” card (we have had this before) is a message with multiple meanings. This could mean that you will be moving to another home or another job in the near future. Maybe you’re “making a move” towards a new relationship or out of an old relationship. This card could also be a message for you to move your body more-dancing, exercising, etc. Whatever this move or movement entails for you specifically-it will be positive and beneficial for you.
You will either be hearing news that will advance you along on your path or you will be “the messenger” in sharing your love and light with others. Good news is coming-bearer or receiver-and will be inspiring and/or uplifting to the recipient(s) of this news. If you are delivering the message, let go of your fear and speak from your heart. The information will be received with grace and compassion.
With the “Peace” card-my interpretation cannot do justice to the beautiful message delivered in the book of this oracle...therefore, I will provide the book’s message word for word. Overall Message: It doesn’t get any better than this: a quiet mind, a heart fulfilled, freedom from want, and the soul’s satisfaction. The way to peace is through radical acceptance. Everything in your world is exactly as it should be. Harmony is beautiful. Enjoy it. Relationship Message: When two people are in true alignment with one another, they have an innate harmony between them. They are as two perfectly tuned instruments playing together. Sometimes it’s impossible to tell who is who. Peace is yours and it is to be savored. Prosperity Message: This is one of those times when you’re capable of clear vision about your work and how you create your prosperity. Whatever you’re doing, keep doing it. You’re called by a Presence to step into your power. Just being is enough, for you are in peaceful harmony with Spirit and it shows in your work.
I want to wish you all peace and love this week. Be open to receiving the love and joy you deserve. Happy Thanksgiving to my friends in the US!
Action Steps to Vacuum Away Fear:
To vacuum yourself, just say:
“Archangels Michael and Raphael, I call upon you and your healing Band of Mercy Angels to come now with your spiritual vacuum cleaner. Please deposit the vacuum hose through my crown chakra and suction away toxic, fear-based energy.”
See and feel the vacuum hose completely cleaning the entire inside of your body (including organs, muscles and bones) from head to toe. Shudders and other physical reactions are a normal and positive sign that the process is working. Continue until your body feels quiet, and then say:
“Thank you Archangels Michael and Raphael for this healing. Please now fill my body with your diamond-bright white light to heal and protect.”
Action Steps to Shield Yourself:
Visualize yourself surrounded by one or more of the following colors (you can layer colors for multiple purposes, such as a white light next to you for general protection, followed by a second layer of green light for healing and covered by a third layer of purple light for spiritual protection):
Blue: Increased communication and clarity
Green: Healing and protection of health
Pink: Lightheartedness and romance
Purple: Spiritual Protection
White: General Protection
The light shields last for about 12 hours, less time in harsh circumstances, so reinvoke them often.
-”Archangel Michael, I appreciate your support in helping me face my feelings with grace and acceptance so that I can be lovingly honest with myself and others. Thank you for giving me courage and strength.”

This week’s angel message focuses on life lessons, growth opportunities, creative/artistic expression, faith and healing. As usual, this is a “general reading” that might not apply to you and your situation, but I hope you are able to take away something that resonates with your heart and soul.
The Angels and the Universe never cease to amaze me! How appropriate that we get the “moon cycles” card as the full Super Moon is occurring on the day I am interpreting this message. We are all influenced by the Universal energies and moon cycles. This is a perfect opportunity to pay attention and gain self-awareness on how the moon cycles affect you-your moods, energy, thoughts, behaviors, creativity, imagination, etc. Journaling and reviewing your entries can help you to gain self-awareness and perspective. Once you gain awareness on how the moon cycles affect you, ride the universal flow and use the moon cycles to your advantage. You might find that you are very creative or intuitive around the full moon. Another way to use the moon cycles to your benefit is to create a “ritual” unique to you. The night before a full moon is an ideal time to “release” what is no longer serving your highest good-this could be thoughts, behaviors, situations, people, etc. Write a list of what you would like to release-then if you desire-burn that list with the intention that you are releasing it to a higher power to be transmuted to loving energy. The new moon is a good time to focus on your intentions and manifesting your desires. Again, it is most important to create a ritual that is unique to you.
It appears there has been something that is stressing you, causing worry and/or challenging you. It is important to take the time you need to process your emotions and feelings before taking positive action to resolve the situation. See this “challenge” as an opportunity for self-awareness and growth. Life is our ongoing education and everyone we encounter teaches us something (in turn, we also teach others). Try to take a different perspective-try removing yourself from the situation. What advice would you give a loved one that is going through what you are going through? What would your spiritual guru do in this situation? On a personal note-some of my biggest growth opportunities have come from a broken heart-giving me great strength, hope and faith I didn’t even know I had. In hindsight, you will see the valuable lesson you learned from this challenging situation-it might not be clear right now as you are currently processing your emotions, trying to make sense of everything and find a solution. Be patient and gentle with yourself.
The angels want you to know that you don’t have to “go it alone” or stress in silence. They are patiently waiting for you to ask for their help (they tell me they get quite bored waiting for you to ask for their help). No request is too small or too great! They cannot interfere with your “free will” and can only help if you ask-so I encourage you to ask your guardian angel and the Archangels for help. Be open to receiving answers and solutions through your intuition, thoughts, ideas and dreams. Have faith that with God, the Universe and the Angels-anything is possible-miracles are possible. Angelic and divine guidance often come in signs and symbols that can be difficult to logically interpret. It is important to decode these messages using your imagination and creativity. Your imagination and creativity will also allow you to brainstorm a solution.
Artistic expression can help you to process your emotions, gain clarity and discover creative solutions. Engaging in creative and artistic expression is similar to meditation and mindfulness as you passionately immerse yourself in the moment. Artistic expression can be writing, drawing, painting, singing, dancing, cooking, decorating, crafting, sewing, photography, humor, etc.
The angels want you to know that if you have been praying for healing-they have heard and are responding to your prayers. Let go of the outcome or your expectations of how your prayers will be answered while maintaining faith and belief that your prayers will be answered. They want you to know that prayers are very powerful and can even be amplified with group prayer. Rally the support of your friends and loved ones for any healing prayers. The healing card can also signify that you have healing abilities. If there is a situation that you are currently “healing” from-believe that you will heal and once you are healed-you will then be able to inspire and heal others who are facing a similar situation. You can pray to God and St. Padre Pio for any healing guidance including help in identifying educational resources in pursuing your healing career. Most importantly, take the time you need to heal and process your emotions.
I am sending you love and encouragement. Keep the faith!
The Blessing of Faith:
The universe is testing you; will you be faithful and true to yourself? Be courageous, for you are supported by a divine ocean of love. You are gifted at this time with the blessing of a strong faith that will see you through the present challenges.
Action steps in asking your angels for help:
-Whether you’re seeking answers and guidance, healing and relief or a manifestation of your earthly material needs-your angels can assist you in powerful ways. Take a moment right now to ask for your angels’ help, either silently or aloud. Please don’t worry about asking for the wrong thing or stating your prayer in an incorrect way-the angels respond to the intention that underlies your request. After you ask for their help, watch for and follow the angels’ replies which will come in the form of gut-feelings, dreams, ideas and signs.
-”Dear God, thank you for granting me the wisdom and creativity to see your miracles in new and unexpected ways. I gratefully and gracefully accept and appreciate your help with [describe the situation].

This reading is different than my other readings. It is a message of love and compassionate guidance in response to the uproar that has occurred as a result of the US Presidential Election. This message is intended to help and empower anyone experiencing negative emotions-either within you or around you. I meditated and sought divine guidance asking the question, “How can I be of loving service?” The answer was to deliver this message with compassion, love and no judgement. I hope this message will spread some much needed love. If you find this message helpful, please share it with others you believe could benefit. I also encourage you to acknowledge the comments section of this blog as a community-please share kind words, words of encouragement and support, as well as, resources for advocacy and activism. Thank you.
Let me start this with a personal observation. Since the election, when I have checked in with social media and the news-I have been disturbed-it is like observing a scene from “The Exorcist” on my newsfeed….like a salted wound....like a forest fire being fueled. Initial reactions can be so emotionally charged and hurtful. I see so much fear and anger being expressed, but can solutions and wise decisions come from a place of fear and anger? Everyone deserves to process their feelings and I encourage you to do so but can those feelings be channeled into positive action? Can you fight fear or anger with love? Anger and fear are very low vibrations and I think we need the higher vibrations of peace, love and productive passion for a purpose. Fear can come from feeling helpless and powerless-so I encourage you to take back your power by asking “what can I do?” Empower yourself and empower others. On the bright side, I also see an aliveness, passion for purpose, empathy, courage and a sense of community on social media. I encourage you to proceed with caution as there is a very delicate balance in “do no harm, but take no sh*t.”
You might think this is cheesy but I had to take a step back and ask what would my spiritual guru(s) do? (Whatever happened to those bracelets...WWJD?) I suggest you do the same. In the face of anger, fear, hate, outrage…”what would [insert your spiritual guru] do? Would they shame, judge, name call or point fingers? Would they take action from a place of love and hope?
I don’t think I have ever spent as much time meditating and being in hibernation as I have over the past week. It is so important to find your peace within, which for me required living in the moment and not fearing for the future. It is from a place of peace, that clarity and solutions can be found. I decided this would be a good time to go inward for some self-reflection, “shadow work” and reviewing my core values. What do I fear? What do I see as social injustice? What can I honestly and lovingly do about it?
The overwhelming message from the cards is about “speaking your truth.” The color blue is the dominant color in all of these cards which represents the throat chakra as well as spirituality. This means to speak your soul’s truth-speak from your heart. Stand up for your core values and beliefs-especially if you feel they are threatened. Speak your truth politely, with love and conviction. Ask your angels and/or spirit guides to protect you and guide your words as you say them. What can love do to extinguish fear and anger? I don’t think judging others will solve any problems. I don't think pointing fingers and name calling is going to earn much respect or solution-based answers. Judging, pointing fingers and name-calling create a separateness, an "us against them" mentality and defensiveness. Think about what happens when someone feels shamed? They feel rejected, they get defensive, guarded and angry. What good can come of that? Focus on what you want (such as fairness, peace and harmony) rather than on what you don't want or fear.
Success can mean many things to the ego self, but the soul only knows one triumph and that is to love. When we die, our soul doesn’t die. It crosses over to the other side-to Heaven and spends a period of time reflecting back on how successful it was in life on earth. Our soul reviews its success in life based on love and overcoming obstacles and life lessons with love and compassion. It is how deeply we loved and received love. In the infinite wisdom of the Universe, the more love you demonstrate, the more you will receive.
It’s apparent that passions have been ignited and people have identified their core values and the things they cannot tolerate-people have found their “cause.” Bravo-don’t you feel alive? So rather than focusing energy on labeling and judging an individual or group as evil, wrong or stupid...can we fight that intolerable “system” instead? Stand up against “the system” of bullying, racism, sexism, LGBTQ rights, environmental rights, animal rights, etc. Focus your energy on the solution, not the problem-don’t give your energy to the disease, give your energy to the cure. If you fear injustice, than volunteer to serve against abolishing that injustice. Fight that injustice with love. Ask yourself, “How can I be of loving service?” What if we transmuted anger and fear into a loving energy and productive passion for a purpose? Be a spiritual warrior for a cause. If you want change, be the change.
You have identified what you are passionate about. So now is the time to educate yourself about that cause and serve with love. Educate yourself and educate others. Attend workshops and seminars that inspire you and give you the knowledge and resources you need to make a positive difference. Educate yourself on civil rights and laws. Use the Internet and local library for research. Search for advocacy/activism/volunteer opportunities, sign petitions, find your “community,” discuss your values and causes you are interested in with family and friends, rally support with family and friends, use social media (positively and lovingly), know your rights and those rights associated with your cause, write to political representatives, etc. Go with the flow of opportunities and don’t panic. You need to be sure to process your emotions and advocate from a peaceful and loving place.
I will use “bullying” as an example of how to lovingly advocate. Rather than add fuel to the bully fire-put that fire out by lovingly standing up for the person(s) being bullied. Let victims know they are not alone, that you care and that community matters. Don’t give any energy to the bully, instead give your energy/your love to the victim. How can you fight bullying with love? Stand next to and offer comfort and support to the person being bullied. This might even be a peaceful and silent stance of support in public-the subway, bus, restaurant...don’t turn a “blind eye.” Report hate crimes. How does pointing fingers and judging-this bully is ignorant, stupid, uneducated-solve bullying? Stand next to the person being bullied, walk home with them-they need the support. Offer to call for help. Report, report, report. Don’t let them be alone with the bully. This is a time when communities can come together in love to support each other.
I’ll end this with saying...I am happy to be alive, humbled for my blessings and proud to be an American. I believe everything happens for a reason-what tests us makes us stronger and wise. I believe in my community and I believe that love will always win. Take care of yourself and take care of others!
-My throat chakra is open to its perfect, healthy state and is spinning with the beautiful energy of freedom and self-empowerment. I am free to express myself in every way.
-”Archangel Michael, please help me feel safe and deserving of your guidance. Thank you for clearing me of heavy, toxic or ego-based thoughts and feelings.”

This week’s angel message focuses on family, self love and creative expression. As always, this is a “general reading” that might not apply to you or your situation, but I hope you are able to take away something that resonates with your heart and soul.
There are a couple of ways to interpret the “Mother, Wife, Sister, Daughter” card and I want to share a few of the messages that were calling out to me. First of all, this could signify that a female loved one in Heaven is reaching out to say “I love you.” I saw a few flashes of people that this message was specifically for. Know that she (your mother, grandmother, wife, sister, daughter) is reaching out to say she is with you always and loves you very much (she is also very proud of you!) This card could also mean that a new relationship with a woman will prove to be very significant. She will help you to learn about yourself, heal and grow. Another interpretation is to be sure that you are balancing your masculine and feminine energies-practice giving and receiving on a daily basis. Lastly, this message could mean that you need to be willing to forgive a significant woman in your life who seems to have hurt you. Any unhealed feelings and resentment could be creating a block in you achieving your dreams. Try to see things from this particular female’s point of view, try to see that she didn’t mean to hurt you and was doing the best she could. Ask God (whomever your God) and your angels to help you release toxic energy and negative emotions associated with this particular female or females in your life. This process opens up the way for healthy relationships with women, including your own female energy (and yes both men and women have feminine energy that needs to be expressed.)
Now onto the children and “Indigo” card which I am interpreting as an Indigo child in your presence (although there are Indigo adults too.) I am going to refer to “we” as me, you, us, your culture, society and the world. I am going to refer to “our children” as children either born to you, adopted or more generally the children of the world-our future generation. So who out there is raising a young Einstein, a future leader, innovator and change-maker? This might seem daunting but it wouldn't have been given to you if you couldn't do it! You and your child have been assigned a sacred task! Indigo children are intuitive, highly-sensitive, curious, creative, spirited and strong-willed. They are natural leaders and change-bringers. They have strong personal beliefs about changing and improving the world. They march to the beat of their own drum and tend to rebel against conformity and authoritarian principles. They don’t like nor respond positively to fear-based, deceitful or manipulative behavior. They challenge outdated belief systems. We have a lot to learn from these special children-and it is important to see that they can teach us a thing or two about what is and is not working in today’s world. Think about it like this, in every relationship-we are both the teacher and the student. Recently, I saw the most adorable video of a baby laughing hysterically tearing up paper with her dad. It was a reminder for me to find joy in the little things. What can WE learn from these children? What changes need to happen to support them? If our children are "failing" then can we take a look at how WE might be "failing" our children? They might have a different way of learning then the way we were taught or continue to learn. No one ever stops learning. What can we learn about them-from them and for them? It’s also important to remember that we lead by example. We show our children what is important to us by our behaviors and actions. Our children learn not just by what we say, but what we do, how we treat ourselves and how we treat others. They learn by how we talk about ourselves and how we talk about others. What are we teaching them about what success and happiness mean? What are we teaching them about love-do we show them how to love ourselves and love others unconditionally? Do we show them that self-care includes setting healthy boundaries with others?
Self care and self acceptance are important for all of us. Show your kids that it is important and a priority! Do we show them that we accept ourselves and others as “imperfect?” What are we teaching our children by the way we are living our life and how we manage stress and disappointments? Are we showing them the importance of balance, health and happiness? I recommend checking out “The Wholehearted Parenting Manifesto” by Brene Brown for more encouragement. You can Google it!
Creative self expression is so important for learning about ourselves-why not make it a family affair? Make sure to incorporate creative self expression into your lives. Spend time routinely with your children practicing creative self expression through storytelling, drawing, painting, writing, singing and dancing. Ask your children to tell you a story. Ask them about their day and let them know it is important to talk about their feelings. Be open to learning more about yourself and your children.
The “creative writing” card indicates that it would be beneficial for you to journal about your feelings. Journaling and expressing yourself creatively helps you to process emotions and break through any emotional blockages. This card could also indicate that you have real creative writing abilities that you are putting to use in a career or that you should pursue as a career. Archangel Gabriel is the “messenger of God.” She is able to help with the creative writing process and can also connect you with people who can help you to get your book or articles published. Call upon Archangel Gabriel with any help you need in creative writing. Be open to her messages appearing through your intuition, dreams or what you synchronistically stumble upon throughout your day.
You have given a lot of yourself lately and now it’s time to receive and to nurture yourself. Take good care of your body-eat healthy, get enough sleep, exercise and detoxify. Balance giving to others with receiving for yourself. Do something nice for yourself and let others love you! It appears that you will be coming into a time where more “leisure” time will become available for you to get some much needed peace of mind. Try to devote time daily to peaceful, quiet solitude. If you can or are practicing meditation-way to go! It is so important to stop our busy minds and just be. Peace, clarity and inspiration can all be found when we take some quiet time to relax our busy minds.
Lastly, we have the “Treasure Island” card. This signifies that positive thinking brings your dreams into reality. This card embodies the “Law of Attraction” where your thoughts create your reality. It is important to remove any blockages-by letting go and forgiving yourself and others. Focus your thoughts on what you want, rather than on what you fear or don’t want. Abundance, prosperity and good fortune are available to you if you keep your thoughts positive! Remember to share any good fortune with others, as treasure shared multiplies like magic.
-I make relaxation a part of my daily life. Peace and quiet bring me clarity and joy.
Prayer Guidance for Indigo children:
-Archangel Metatron oversees the Indigo generation, so he is the best angel to call upon for help with issues related to Indigo children and adults. Take a few moments to quiet your mind and body, by closing your eyes and taking some deep breaths. Then ask Archangel Metatron any questions you have related to children in general; a specific child; or a person who exhibits Indigo qualities such as sensitivity, strong will and concern for the earth. Ask Archangel Metatron for guidance with this issue or for a Divine assignment in which you can help the Indigo generation.

Hello my coupled friends! I appreciate your patience as I took some time to interpret and meditate on your love reading. This reading is for men and women who are dating, married or in a committed long-term relationship. This is a “general reading” that might not apply to all, but I hope you are able to take away something that resonates with your heart and soul.
Can I just start by saying...Oh the joy of being an empath. I literally put myself in your shoes during my readings and let me tell you what that experience was for me-maybe you can relate this to your current situation. I empathically felt a struggle and insecurities arising. Like what am I supposed to do with this information, this newfound truth? I found myself wanting to drive to Cold Stone Creamery for some comfort food-ice cream! I found myself wanting to drive to the liquor store to pick up a bottle of wine. I found myself wanting answers and a solution. I found myself getting hot and bothered. I also found that I was being just a tad bit reactive and dramatic. Can you relate? This reading seems so specific to a certain situation, I am not sure how many people will be able to relate to it...at least currently.
The road to self discovery is a lifelong process. Being in a relationship can take the road of self-discovery and enlightenment to a whole new level. In intimate relationships with others, we discover a whole new part of ourselves that we might have been suppressing. You can say or act in ways that bring your subconscious (shadow side, suppressed aspects of your personality) to the surface. You can then beat yourself up and feel guilty-like I don’t know what came over me? Forgiveness and compassion for yourself is necessary. Don’t beat yourself up-learn from your experiences. Learn the root of the insecurity. Be patient, stay with the process. This will be the making of you. It can really strengthen your relationship to speak about your feelings, your beliefs and your values. What might have originally drew you into relationship with your partner might not be what is important to you anymore-but that doesn’t mean that your relationship is in jeopardy. It’s okay if your values and beliefs have changed as you are constantly evolving and learning more about yourself. Don’t get defensive, don’t put your guard up. Let yourself be vulnerable-express your feelings, beliefs and values with love and honesty.
Be compassionate with yourself. Remember that the way you treat yourself is important, as it shows others how to treat you. Love yourself unconditionally-all of you-and expect that others will do the same. If they can’t-well that is a whole other reading. Stay present, stay patient, stay flexible and stay compassionate with yourself and your partner!
It is also important to take time to honor and acknowledge who you are and what you have accomplished with your life thus far. Be mindful of how your positive actions, compassion and understanding have made a better life for you and those around you. Reflect on what you have mastered. It is important not to under-appreciate or underestimate yourself or your accomplishments. We tend to spend too much of our energy and time on negative emotions or what we have not done. It is important to also acknowledge your partner’s accomplishments.
You have recently learned quite a bit about your true self, your values and beliefs. You have been evolving! You have probably had some profound revelations about what really matters to you in life. Your definitions of success and happiness might have changed. This might have been challenging as it is different that what you were raised to believe. When we were young, we learned from society and our parents what success, happiness and relationships meant. Add a little fantasy in the mix and we set ourselves up for disappointment and failure. That doesn’t mean that anyone was wrong, but your truth is unique to you. What works for some, doesn’t always work for others. It’s okay, consider this a clean slate as you wipe away those old beliefs. Consider this a time of learning about you and your partner. Explore these areas with an open heart and open mind and watch your relationship strengthen.
I see you are coming from a beautiful place of loyalty, devotion, cooperation, perceptiveness and compassion. Your intuition is on-point and this radiates throughout the reading. Now the challenge is to accept yourself and your partner in a compassionate and non-judgmental way. You have developed a greater understanding of life as you have done quite a bit of self-reflection in the recent past. This is a time to express your values and beliefs with your partner, compromise where you can but also stay true to your “deal-breakers.” Always remain open to forgiveness.
The challenge for you is confronting the shadow side of yourself. Learn to love and accept all of you-consider that you have a multitude of “archetypes” or “key players” inside of you and they all serve a purpose. If you choose to deny one of these characters-this character will act out like a 2-year-old having a tantrum and wanting attention. If we don’t love and accept our dark side, it can become unruly, destructive and self-sabotaging. So love and accept all of you-even what you consider the “not so pretty, let’s hide it in a closet” parts of you. Trust me, you don’t want to deal with the disaster this character can create if it is neglected.
We all have an independent spirit in us that wants freedom and adventure, as well as a spirit that desires intimacy with another. Allow yourself both freedom and intimacy. Your relationship will benefit when you have a balance of these aspects of yourself. You also need to allow your partner this same balance.
It is important to face your fears and insecurities. It is important to look at past “undesirable” actions with compassion and find out where they came from. Fear of abandonment? Fear of losing independence? Fear of…(fill in the blanks) and then take it a step further-why do I have that fear-where did that come from? Where did I learn that this means that? Understand and acknowledge motivations behind past actions. Remember there are no mistakes in life, only lessons learned. Let go of regrets and resentments and take away the wisdom gained from past perceived mistakes.
Consider yourself in a time of transition as you confront some of these fears and your dark side, again with compassion and unconditional love. Do you have a secret behavior? Why is it a secret? Is there shame and judgement attached? Do you judge your partner for their “mistakes?” Why? Is there something about their behavior that is reflected in you? Try to see these behaviors from a higher perspective and not take it personally. Talk to your partner about any behaviors they have that you don’t like. Don’t get all “judgey” with them-that will only make them guarded and defensive. Come from a place of compassion, empathy and love. Let them know how this behavior makes you feel. Talk it out with them to see if creative solutions can be found. If they don’t see a problem with this behavior, then again that is a whole other reading. The truth is that if you see this behavior as problematic, they probably do too. If you tackle it as a team, offering unconditional love and support, your relationship will strengthen.
I see great potential for healing and maturation both as an individual and as a couple. Make sure to use your intuition, follow your heart. You have the ability to balance emotion, intellect and willpower. You are committed and loyal to this relationship. Use your creativity to devise solutions that will work to any problems that you are facing. You have great inner strength, maturity and patience to face any obstacles and challenges. Again, know your deal-breakers and share them with your partner. Like that song-”you gotta know when to hold em’ and know when to fold em’.” Compromise is needed but not on your core values. Stay hopeful, optimistic and curious about your future. Maintain an open heart and open mind. Love yourself unconditionally and expect that to be reciprocated, if it is not, again that is a whole other reading and counseling might be required. I really don’t see anything that extreme happening here but this is a “general reading.”
I see that if you commit to self discovery, learning and growing, as well as, accepting your partner where they are at-while offering support in their self-discovery process-victory and success are assured. Be generous with your emotional support and know that your “ wishes” will come true.
I also see that it is time to get playful with your beloved. Bring back that youthful spirit to recapture romance in your relationship. When was the last time you had fun with your partner? Fun is a necessity, not a luxury. Playtime is essential in relationships to keep the free-spirited component of dating alive. Plan regular “date nights” with your partner and take turns creatively planning fun activities.
I also see that a “retreat” would be beneficial-a time with just you and your beloved. It’s time to disconnect from the world and get reacquainted with your feelings. Spending time alone with your beloved will renew your commitment and take it to the next level. This could mean taking a vacation, going on a nature walk, enjoying a long drive or turning off the phone and computer as you spend some much needed alone time together. The retreat card could also indicate the deepening of commitment-such as an engagement, wedding or a honeymoon. If this is the case-congratulations!
With all that being said...Cheers to you and your beloved!

Well now I see why I was getting the divine urge to complete a love reading! Can I just say how amazing it is that the Universe, Heaven and the Angels are all about love and relationships?! They really are-they have been pushing me for a couple of days now. Our ancestors might just be our best matchmakers. Anyway, LOVE is in the air my single friends and you are so deserving of it since it looks like you have been doing much inner work and healing after weathering a severe storm. I am talking BIG LOVE, divine love, passionate, beautiful love. A connection of mind, body and spirit with another! I am so excited, can you tell? This reading will be short and sweet because the message is so clear and brilliant!
As usual, this is a “general reading” and might not apply to all. This is a reading for single men and women that are looking for a love relationship in their life. Also, there is some effort you need to put into making this happen-I don’t think your perfect partner will literally fall into your lap but if so-fantastic!
It appears that you have been going through some tough times-possibly over the past 6 months. You may be feeling exhausted (physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually) and wondering when life is going to turn around and get better. Well I believe you are on the road to better-calmer waters are here. I don’t see any obstacles in your path moving forward, in fact, there is not a “bad” card in this spread!
It appears you have endured a battle-inner and possibly outer. If this was a battle with others, it was definitely an inner battle as well. You are emerging from a challenging time. You have endured and found strength you never knew you had in you. Be proud of your warrior self! You have learned some valuable life lessons about yourself, your relationships (current and past) and about the workings of this chaotic world. You might not know quite where you are headed but you are taking one step at a time as the way is divinely lit for you. This is a time to follow your heart and intuition. You are on the path to regaining your energy.
It appears that you have spent time isolating yourself, protecting your heart, feeling vulnerable as you mended those battle wounds. You have gotten comfortable with yourself-all of you-the light and dark, the yin and yang, the masculine and feminine. You have found balance, peace and harmony within. This is setting the stage for a great partnership with another. You have looked at your insecurities and how they have held you back or put you in not-so-balanced relationships. You have gained clarity on what it is you truly desire in a relationship with another and also on what you have to offer another.
It looks like many of you have somebody in mind that you desire or somebody is strongly desiring you. It looks like you might already be in love with someone or they are in love with you. You are coming to a time where you are going to make your feelings known...or someone will make their feelings known to you. With determination, confidence and focus-you are ready to pursue a love relationship. I also see that there is a strong possibility that the feelings are reciprocated. If you don’t have somebody in mind, you are “brewing” up the perfect partner-manifesting based on your thoughts and desires. The Universe responds to all our thoughts like prayers waiting to be answered.
You have the Universe’s support-with 4 of the cards being Major Arcana. It’s almost like Spirit is pushing you along. You have faced your fears and have a better understanding of yourself. You have realized that any perceived “mistakes” in the past were actually just blessings-as you have learned much about yourself and discovered that you have a great deal of inner strength and determination. You have become “whole” or are on your way. Don’t give up now! You are at the completion of a cycle or chapter in your life, ready to take a leap into a bright new beginning. With both “The Lovers” card and the “2 of Vessels” card-this is a perfect match. This is soulmate material, eternal love, harmony with a lover that will also be your best friend. You will just “get” each other. If you don’t know who that person is, get out there-you are ready! Join groups or go to public events and places that stir your passions. Let your heart and intuition lead the way to these groups, events and people. You will meet the perfect match for you. You have accepted yourself exactly as you are and are moving into a profound sense of self-respect. Having this confidence, self-acceptable and self-respect makes you very attractive. Love yourself unconditionally and you can expect unconditional love and harmony in your relationships.
Whatever you went through, which again, looks pretty intense has made you strong and self-assured. It has brought you to now, so be grateful for it and release any concerns from the past-don’t carry them with you any longer-they will only weigh you down. Let yourself start fresh. Reconcile any past grievances, forgive yourself and others if you are harboring any resentment. Getting rid of any of this residual negative energy will allow a space for the “new love” to enter your life.
I see that many of you are focusing too much on finances and career pressures, it is important to find balance between work and play. Disentangle yourself from material pressures so that you can enjoy every aspect of your life-including romance. I also see that many will be reconciling with someone from your past. This could be an ex-lover or friend. There could be a rekindling of love lost or a deepening of love with a friend. Again, this could also be a sign to reconcile with anybody you have had difficulty with in the past-wipe that karmic debt-get that clean slate you need so you are able to enter into this relationship with little to no “baggage.” This is a time to achieve healing and closure with any past relationships and a time to understand your relationship patterns. Forgive yourself and others for the roles played and any hurt feelings. Take care of that unfinished business. And then seriously, get yourself out there or make your feelings known to the one you desire.
Cheers to YOU and cheers to loving new relationships! If you want to share your new love story with me, please do! I will always keep your stories private.
